983 Scott Street, Point Loma, 92106
Current Owner: Morgan Dene Oliver
List Price: $8,800,000
How about a “unique and stunning 6500-square-foot bay front contemporary home” in Point Loma with a private dock?
Built in 1988, the residence at 983 Scott Street was “designed by award-winning architect Ken Ronchetti,” an Encinitas-based designer whose residential work has been featured in high-end communities across Southern California. Ronchetti’s architecture was complemented by “renowned interior designer Barbara Barry” of Los Angeles.
“This spectacular home and meticulously maintained property has perfect harmony between indoor and outdoor living,” say listing materials, promising that “the angles, ceiling heights, indoor /outdoor spaces, exterior lighting, limestone patios, Creston control system, and overall warmth of this house give it that wow factor which will impress the most demanding of clients who want the best that San Diego has to offer.”
After entering the property via “private auto court” featuring “four garages with teak doors,” prospective buyers will find “doors and windows of teak, floors of walnut and limestone, thick plaster walls inside and out, and four-zone heating and air conditioning.” A recently remodeled kitchen features Subzero and Viking appliances, while “the bathroom surfaces are made of various marbles and limestone.”
Other features include a poolside gym and massage room, a library, and two staircases, one leading to an office space. Meanwhile, “festive holidays will find you enjoying a large dining room that easily seats 14 people. The “magical master bedroom” has retractable doors “that open onto a balcony overlooking the bay and marina” — several other rooms also have oversized doors that “disappear,” opening up interior living areas to outdoor patios.
Outside, a side patio contains a “65-foot lap pool and very large spa — both with electronic covers.” A private grass lawn fronts the bay, where the home offers “one of the few onsite docking privileges on Point Loma.”
Public records show the Scott Street estate is owned by Morgan Dene Oliver, one of the founding partners of Oliver-McMillan, a privately held real estate development firm responsible for billions of dollars in projects. The group is one of six finalists in a Port of San Diego competition for redevelopment rights of a 70-acre parcel of land and water on the bayfront where Seaport Village and Tuna Harbor are located.
The property was previously listed for sale in late 2014 for $9.8 million, but it was pulled from the market after five months when it failed to attract a buyer. It was most recently re-listed in early June, with the asking price reduced to $8.8 million.
